Places I Follow

MaryAnn's Activity

ATexas: How many days should you spend in each city in Texas?

Like everyone before has said, depends on what you want out of your trip. I lived in Texas 40 years (was born there and moved to NM on my 40th birthday). Texas is sort of a country in itself. It WAS a country after all. Divide it up as such and you have five? ish?... See More

ADallas: Where is the best barbeque in Dallas?

Head south. Like SOUTH. Anywhere that begins to look dicey or make you question if you made a 'wrong turn', then start looking for BBQ signs. Painted on trucks, building sides, trailer sides. Sides. Then you're golden. If they have table cloths - run. If 'utensils'... See More

ASanta Fe (New Mexico): Wine lover's Santa Fe?

Julia,  New Mexico has a great wine history and most places serve 'local'. Tradition says that wine has been produced in NM since around 1629. Monks and friars snuck in vines from Spain to make the sacrificial communion wine. Gruet, St Clair, Black... See More

ADominican Republic: How reach from Punta Cana to Cabarete

Ja,  Hey we used private transfer and shuttle to both locations. Could not find (or figure out) the public transport!!! Ask your hotel if they can recommend transportation. Samana is REMOTE. If I recall correctly it was about 30 miles from the airport but a 3 hour drive... See More

AVenice: 24 hours in Venice. What would you do, see, eat and go?

Back from Venice, Rome and Amalfi. Thanks for the advice and input. We wandered the streets, got lost a tad, bar hopped (crawled as they call it) snacking and drinking. Sat in plazzas eating gelato and people watching. Lovely 24 hours! Browsed shops filled with leather... See More

ASanta Fe (New Mexico): Places to go at night in Santa Fe?

Bars- sorry! Santa Fe Tap​ on the plaza! See More

ASanta Fe (New Mexico): Places to go at night in Santa Fe?

Santa Fe and nightlife really don't go together. At all. That said, go to the opera (I know I know... but it's the coolest opera ever).  It's open air. It opens to a view that will take your breath. Also it's an opera where tailgating... See More

ASanta Fe (New Mexico): Hotels in Santa Fe with spa?

Ten Thousand Waves ​ on Artists Road is on the way to the Santa Fe Ski Basin. I have never been (sorry, I'm just not a spa girl) but good grief every female I know in the area adores this place. Just know you will be 'au naturale'... See More
